    ‘Relays’ or ‘Creative Actors’?

    It is the potential for being a ‘creative actor’ which has kept me growing and delighting in teaching as a profession for over 35 years.
    Sadly, far too often, teachers themselves see their role/duty as merely ‘relaying’. Equally sadly, some administrators – and some curriculum designers – also see ‘relaying’ as the primary role of their teachers, and resolutely discourage ‘creativity’.

    When it comes to positive impact upon the lives of others, the teachers which most of us remember best will have been both creative and deeply caring in the way they ‘acted’, rather than passively ‘relaying’ information.
